STOP: Gun and Knife Crime

Alexander Rose London

'I was boiling inside and looked up to the sky and thought a life had gone for no reason... I just had to do something'

My campaign

Friends and family members have died because of gun and knife crime. I want young people to STOP carrying weapons and think about what else is out there, apart from joining a gang. I’m using what I know best – design - to fight the negative gangster image and I want to inspire others to do something positive too. Everyone can use what they have to do something.

Campaign Highlights

- Getting the support of Archbishop Desmond Tutu and the Tutu Foundation

- Winning an award from the Body Shop

- Speaking at schools and youth clubs across London

- Watching knives smelted down by the police to make my pendants

- Putting on my event at the Ministry of Sound to promote “Education is the Key”

How you can help

- Buy and wear my STOP T-shirts

- Look out for my “Education is the Key” pendants

- Spread the STOP message

As i lay in my bath.My place of peace and haven i hear the sound i dread the most the sound of most.The sirens of emergency vehicles,my relaxation now become anxiety i hope and i pray that my sons are safe,out there on the streets i didnt hear any noise,no shouting or any gun shoots.My thoughts than turn to the cold sharpe pain of a noise just warmth and pain.lonely and laying down hoping and praying that you will be found.Pain has no discriminaton,loss has no discriminatinon,the blood thet has been lost has no discrimination.My thoughts then turn to the familys of who havent been so luckly.I hear my sons footsteps and thank god.But the pain gos on and never dies,like the young people now in the sky a peaceful tranquil place. God bless them all.

Unfortunately another person has lost their life due to knife crime only this time it was a father whose sole purpose in England was to provide for his family back in the punjab. I have been wondering ever since how his family will survive now that his life has been cut short. I understand that the Sikh community are trying to raise money in order to have his body returned and wondered if our community could also help with this. Any ideas would be welcome.

Hi Alex. Obviously the work your doing is great mate but i was wondering if you do any work with the stop campaign in scotland, were 3 and a half times more likely to be a victim of knife crime than in england or wales. there like mobile phones up here everyones got one. If not I would like to do something involving stop. keep on keeping on bud

Hi. I would be really interested in getting in touch with you about an anti-knife crime project that I am holding this year. I want it to really make a difference and think that by getting people like yourself on board we would be at a huge advantage and would be able to make the project really special. We want to take an anti-knife crime play to prisons, youth offenders and site specific performances in London and Manchester. The play is called Territory and it was written by 19yr old Reuben Johnson, from Salford. It really does have a chance of getting through to people. Would love you on board. Get in touch if you can.

Hi Alexander, I'm a teacher at a 6th Form College in Leicester. Recently I have been showing my students the amazing work you've been doing in campaigning against knife crime. One of my students is currently carrying out a research project at AS level into gun and knife crime and would love to talk to you to find out more about what you do. Is there a way he can contact you directly? This would be such a valuable experience for him as he is already really inspired by you! He is unable to join facebook or bebo so a direct email address would be great. Also if we could it would be great to arrange for you to come in and talk to our students. If this is not possible my student will be presenting what he finds out from you. It would be much appreciated if you could get back to us as soon as you can. Kind regards, Miranda Banister, Teacher of Cultural Studies

Hi Alexander, I just heard about the inspiring work that you're doing. Congratulations. Matt Locke suggested I leave a note here for you and I've emailed Lucy Willis. The reason is I'd love to invite you to speak at a conference called MLOVE in Germany in April. Perhaps you could email me your contact details to and we could talk. Pete

Peter Giblin, 11 December 2009 11:32
